I passed SCJP exam with score of 71%, Not a great score, but I will take it.
The exam was not very tough, questions on threads are not very tough, I got only one Thread question with 30 lines of code which was related to threads trying to access synchronized Stringbuffers, all others where simple Careful reading of RHE and writing some programs with wait , notify and synchronized keywords will help.
I referred RHE, Exam Cram and Barry Boone . But the best tool to learn is javac, I wrote hundreds of small programs to clear fundamentals of the language.
I took all Mock exams on Maha Anas page,
(Mock Exams - Marcus Greens's and Bill Brogdens toughest 19 question exams for the last day)
Also played rules round up game for learning fundamentals.
Thanks to the moderators of Javaranch ( Ajith and co. ) for helping me with some questions. I think you people are doing a great Job.
Good luck to all who are planning to appear in future.
